The 14 Year Old Guitar Extremist

The JS1200 Ibanez signature series guitar by Joe Satriani, what any guitarist wouldn’t give to own one.  Now for a 14 year old guitarist to be dreaming of owning one is another story, and here it is.  This is a guitar that has been the apple of this child’s eye for quite some time.   If you’ve ever seen “The Christmas Story” then you know how bad someone can want something and how fun it can be to surprise them with the gift of their dreams.  This was the case for Armored Flight guitarist Brandon Andersohn and it was no red rider BB gun.  A Christmas dream come true.

Not long after seeing and meeting Joe Satriani at a guitar clinic held at Guitar Center in San Francisco, CA. this young “extremist” decided to follow his dream and made a commitment that music and guitar were going to be his life.  One day, he’d be a professional guitar player just like his mentor Joe Satriani.  The inspiration and motivation instilled in this young man by Joe that evening is evident in this song and video.  That “one day” that he has dreamed of may already be here.  The candy apple red guitar resonates his heart and passion and displays his gifts and talents for both the eyes and ears.

Inspired by Joe Satriani, Brandon Andersohn performs “Always with me, Always With You
